Default Independent Women Club

I know a lot of you ladies out there are doing your thing. A lot of you are going to college, and working full time... plus, some of you have kids you all gots to take care of. A lot of you are doing this all alone, especially those who still got their man on the inside. Big Props to ya ladies!

This club is for all of us who are holding it down, trying to do something good with our lives, and trying to provide a better future for ourselves, and our families. Anyone can join, you all know who you are.

**A lil bit bout me. I work full time as a Teacher Aide with Special Needs Kids, part time as a cashier at a convenience store, and I'm also an Avon Representative on the side. I also go to college full time, taking 13hrs this semester. My major is Elementary Education with a minor in Special Ed.**

So where my INDEPENDENT LADIES at????

A little bit about me....

I am 21 soon to be 22 (in about a month), I go to school full time and work part time as a group leader for a non-profit childcare organization. I have no children of my own, but I have 15 little ones during the daytime. I am paying rent, all my own bills, visiting my fiance, and putting money on his books all on a part time paycheck (well that and a few student loans....) How do we do it?!!

I also work part time in a hospital an have 3 kids I raise alone a 7 year old son a 5 year old daughter and a 17 year old daughter from my previous marriage. My ex husband has been locked up for 16 years. when my daughter was 8 he was in jail her mom died from cancer and she was put into foster care. At 16 years old I had my son and was pregnant with my daughter. I went to parenting classes and had a full time job I fought in court and then legally adopted her. So she is my daughter. On top of that she is pregnant now so I will be a grandmother at the age of 23. Crazy huh? Well I guess I am member #6

I know this may be a dumb question, but how do you actually "Join" a club on PTO? I haven't been on here that long just a few months, so I never really found out.

I am definitely down for this club. You already know. And thank you missone and flamered, I don't feel so old now

Do any of you ever wonder how it's going to go when your man gets home and you are used to calling all the shots and taking care of everything? We all know we can depend on ourself, but what about someone else, even if they are our mate? Right now he doesn't mind that I make most decisions, "The queen hath spoken", but I am going to have to let go of some of my control issues.

I guess I never really realized that I would have something in common with so many people out there especially strong women. I just turned 20 about a month ago and I am in my 3rd year of college. I work part time at school and the minimum wage is only 5.15/hr. So with that and a check I receive monthly from my fathers death benefits I am paying rent, a car note, all my bills and taking care of my fiance. I guess it wouldn't be so hard if I learned how to budget my money on those phone calls but I'm making it and will continue to find a way.

Keep your head up to all the strong women on this site!

Welcome to the Club.

one_luv just take of you B**** hat , (i mean queen B LOL)
Put on a hat of humility and you will be fine. Some things you will STILL have to handle for a while, others will come or should come naturally.

I suppose I should be wearing that humility hat every once in awhile now so that it will fit when he comes home.

Well, I am 31 with a three year old daughter, and a five year old daughter that I adopted. My man is 25, and I run a store that me and him opened up together beforehe got locked up. Nothing too big, just a little convenience store. He has been down a few months now, and I am waiting for however long it takes, but he was offered shock, so he should be home soon, I so guess that makes me # 11

Well let's see, I haven't seen my baby in 3 weeks thanks to hurricane Rita! I was going to go see him last weekend but they cancelled visits for his unit because of the Hurricane, Hopefully I will get to see him this weekend, If I have enough $$$ for gas! Gas prices are riduculous these days! Anyway I really really miss him. Everything else is the same work, and school are going good, but Lord knows I'm ready to graduate already! What keeps me going is knowing that when I do graduate I can get a better job and even help my fiance pay for school when he get's out, especially since they make it extremely difficult to get a job or any sort of financial aid if you are an ex-con.
How is everyone else doing?
Anyone having a visit this weekend?

So, my independent ladies.............

Out of all you have your plate- work, school, kids, holding down your man, keeping the bills paid, etc., etc., what is the most challenging right now for you?

Mine is raising my 13-year old daughter. She will be 21 when her step dad gets home, and she was 8 when he went away. Things would be so different between us if he were here. You think when they're young it will get easier when they get older, but nope. Especially between mothers and daughters during adolescence, there is a unique phenomenon that happens, most teenage girl hate their moms at least for a spell. I try and I try and I do everything for that girl but it is never enough and that is what breaks my heart so much because it wouldn't;t be like this if he was home.

So what is your biggest struggle right now?

Most challenging for me right now is trying to get my car fixed... To some this may sound trivial.... but my man IS my mechanic... he was fixing my car before we started going out.... Now i am trying to sell 3 cars, keep from getting parking tickets on them & get enough money to fix my main car that needs brakes....

I drive his van to take kiddo to school, but if i drive it more than 2 miles it over heats.... Then the rest of the time i walk...

I am in the process of trying to adopt a bus stop so i can get free bus tickets so i dont have to walk over 3 miles a day.....
